Addressing Interpersonal Violence at Rutgers University


Offices for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance

The Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance is committed to creating a community free from violence. The Offices on each campus provide services designed to raise awareness of and respond to the impact of interpersonal violence and other crimes. Through a combination of direct service, education, training, policy development, and consulting to the University and broader community, the offices serve as a critical voice in changing prevailing beliefs and attitudes about violence.

The Offices for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance (VPVA) are partially funded by the Enhancing Victim Services Grant through the Attorney General's Office (AG-VOCA)


The following pages offer guidance and resources on the Rutgers University path toward addressing and ultimately ending, interpersonal violence. As part of the Enhancing Victim Services Project, the Center for Research on Ending Violence works closely with campus partners to create a series of Technical Assistance Documents covering best practices, the latest in research and innovative programs and other topics. To access the documents please visit our Resource Page.
